Saab 92

The vehicle tested was one of 20 demonstration prototypes, and I found it very difficult to find fault on any major point. This latest recruit to the ranks of the world's small cars was planned back in 1945 when Saab started looking round for a profitable sideline to supplement their normal output of jet-propelled aircraft.

It was decided that the sideline should be small, economical cars of advanced construction, which, in addition to fulfilling a post-war need for a home-produced Vo...Read the full article

Didn't Sweden drive on the left and therefore have RHD vehicles until 1967?

Good spot. Export model or an erroneously reversed photograph, perhaps.

It's not worth £30 right now.

When Saaby wrote 'continue' last week it seemed a bizarre statement given that the line has indeed stopped some time ago and doesn't look like starting again. Perhaps everyone has a different perception of time to me?

Continue to regain? What exactly have they started to regain recently?

The PhoeniX concept, the fact that SAAB were free again from GM.... and then the line stopped and things went downhill very rapidly. Up until that point though, I would argue that they were starting to get their mojo back.

Saw an estate version of this car yesterday - very cool, although the kids in the rear-facing back seats didn't look particularly well-protected from rear impact.
